About This Show
The Pavement Pounders discuss adapted science fiction, generally well-known films derived from written works. They read the book, watch the movie, watch remakes, reboots, re-adaptations, and give it all a good mulling over.
Most Recent Episode
TMTYR Episode #51: We Had a Beta Unit (The Last Starfighter)
Fittingly, for Episode #51, the Pavement Pounders discuss an alien abduction movie, as Centauri kidnaps Alex Rogan in his intergalactic Predator Van to make him fight Xur and his Ko-Dan Armada.
Yes, it’s another April Fool’s “Reverse Adaptation,” as we discuss the 1984 film The Last Starfighter and its Alan Dean Foster novelization. It’s a bit late for April Fool’s Day, but wasn’t that part of the joke?
Will we ever get out of 1984? Tune in next time and see!
Also of note is that between the Heasley and Kuskie offspring, we were 0-3 on kids liking the movie. We have failed as parents.
